Tasting notes :
On the eye, it is brightly coloured, quite unctuous with pronounced and persistent legs.
On the nose, you can smell white flowers and honeyed candied fruit, wrapped lightly in oak, revealing its complexity, quality and richness.
On the palate, the aromatic intensity and great maturity of the vintage, offset by a very refreshing finish, are confirmed.
This balance between freshness, finesse and maturity suggests a great white wine that will keep for a long time. But such is its array of qualities, you can enjoy it already.
